The latest edition of Steam Railway magazine is on sale now, and it is packed with exclusive offers and features only available to SR readers.
Steam Railway’s narrow gauge expert Peter Johnson presents an exclusive perspective of the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways from the air, showing off this magnificent 1ft 11½in gauge railway like you’ve never seen it before.
There’s also an exclusive 2-for-1 offer for Bluebell Railway tickets. Turn to page 43 to claim your voucher – which is only available to SR readers (T&Cs apply).
Elsewhere, we explore the fascinating careers of two locomotives from the opposite ends of history – the elegant, Victorian Liverpool & Manchester Railway 0-4-2 Lion, and the utilitarian War Department 2-8-0 No. 90733.
In addition, we preview preservation’s newest station – Broadway on the Gloucester Warwickshire Railway – before it opens in March, and explore the experiments carried out in Ireland with turf-burning locomotives towards the end of steam on the Emerald Isle.
As always, we bring you the very latest news, comment and analysis from the world of steam preservation, including the NRM’s latest redevelopment plans, the proposal to return Invicta to Whitstable and Duchess of Sutherland’s premature withdrawal.
There’s all this and more in the latest edition of Steam Railway magazine – on sale now!
